Visiting former chief of general staff of eastern command of India JFR Jacob has demanded immediate trial of war criminals, reports UNB.

"The trial of war criminals can be held under the country''s existing law. The government can take initiatives of holding their (war criminals) trials as the country people have already raised their voices for it," he told reporters after placing wreaths at the National Mausoleum in Savar Sunday.

Maj. Gen. (retd) Laxman Singh, another member of the visiting Indian army team, said : "Being a fighter in the liberation war of Bangladesh, I must want trial of war criminals through special tribunal."

He said trial of German war criminals have taken place after 50 years of the II World War. "So I don''t think there is any bar to holding trial against the war criminals after 37 years of liberation war," Singh said.

Earlier on March 25, a 10-member delegation of liberation war veterans, led by Lt General (retd) JFR Jacob of Indian Army, along with their spouses arrived on a seven-day visit on the occasion of Bangladesh''s 37th Independent and National Day.
